Gorilla Gamer Crate Subscription Box Review + Coupon– May 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Gorilla Gamer Crate is a subscription box for gamers! Their website calls it a “monthly, mystery, console specific crate focused 100% on video gamers.” My sons are complete video game addicts, so they were thrilled to hear about this box!

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)


The Subscription Box: Gorilla Gamer Crate

The Cost: $39.99 + $7.95 shipping = $47.94 / month with discounts for longer commitments

We finally received a different card in our box! Unfortunately, it still doesn’t have any info about the contents.


Gorilla Gamer Custom Tee – Value $15?

This is the t-shirt that was included this month. My ten-year-old loves it!


KMD Protective Skin for PS4 Controller – Value $8.47

This was not that thrilling of an item for the kids to get, but I’m happy about it. Anything to make the controllers last longer is awesome in my book! Those things are not cheap!


Funko POP! Games Doom Cyberdemon Figure – Value $14.99

A very strange thing happened with this little guy. First, my sons don’t play Doom yet, but second, they love getting Funko POP!s to add to their collection. The strange part is that he was included in this package without the box. He was just kind of chucked in there, as seen here. We didn’t even know who he was until Ragan told me (thanks again, Ragan!). Very, very odd.


Gorilla Gamer Custom Mouse Pad – Value $5?

As mousepads go, this one is really cool, but I’m actually wondering if it is indeed a mouse pad. Could this be something else? It’s really big for a mouse pad, maybe 15″ x 12″. We also don’t have any machines with mice at the moment, so this is a (still really cool) miss for us.


Assorted Snacks – Value about $5

This month’s snacks are considerably healthier than last month’s! You know I like that! My husband is a big jerky fan, too.

Verdict: My kids really like their Gorilla Gamer Crate subscription, and I think they got some great things this month that they will really enjoy. I’m most excited about the controller skin, but I’m a little confused by the Funko POP! arriving without a box. The value of this month’s package is about $48, which just clears the cost of the box, so I’m OK with that, but in previous months the value has been higher. I really hope this isn’t the beginning of a trend.

What do you think of Gorilla Gamer Crate?

  1. As others have said – it’s just a “gaming” pad. Lootcrate did the same thing months ago with a Borderlands one. Just designed to give you more distance & height. Honestly handy if you do a dual monitor setup for any reason. I use the LC one at work, since i run 2 24″ monitors – gives me enough room to throw across both screens w/o picking up my mouse.

  2. Something you could use the unwanted mouse pads for, i use them for making drinks or laying cups or dishes on for drying. Actually considering having them sowed together and making a larger mat. They are of the same make of the mats used in bars to mix drinks on and to help keep from breaking glass cups etc. =)

  3. I think it’s definitely a mouse pad. Gaming mouse pads are often very large- typically, you need a lot of room to move your mouse when playing PC games. If you’re a hopeless nerd like me and watch professional PC game tournaments, you’ll notice that the players’ mouse pads are as long as their forearms and extremely wide.

  4. That mousepad might be a combo keyboard/mouse pad for both items
